About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

National Coloring Day with Adornit

Howdy everyone.  Thanks for checking out my projects.  I'm going to make my introduction quick and simple.

My first card I made using Adornit's Art Play.  I watercolored the image and added sequins in the tree for some extra bling.

My second project I made is one of Adornit's Art Play 8x10 images to color.  I watercolored this a few months back for a friend of mine.  I needed the perfect frame for it so I went thrift store shopping, and I found it.  The perfect wood frame. I included a close up of part of it to show some of the elements I added to give it some "pop".  Liquid pearls in the "keep" and the center of the sunflower along with some gold Flower Soft in the center of the sunflower too.  I forgot to put a butterfly on this before I took the pic but there is a dimensional butterfly on it  too.

This card I made using Unity's stamp set "Naturally You".  And the "thanks" came from "Total Cuteness".  This was watercolored as well.  I love watercoloring because you have a lot of control of your blending of colors and fading. It's hard to tell but the green paper behind the image is actually glitter paper.  I couldn't get it to catch the sun.  Thanks again for stopping by.  Be sure to leave me some comments.  I really love reading them. :)
